" panel. a publisher of energy magazine and chief clinical correspondent with the "washington examiner" and fox news contributor. we're obviously talking about it right now. the stakes are very high, the union loves this thing creating thousands of jobs in the country. but environmentalists are fiercely opposing it. putting them in a peculiar situation as best i can put it at this point. >> his duct between the constituents. the democratic party in general. just the other day there was a protest in front of the white house, some top officials were arrested. they're all demanding obama killed the pipeline. at the same time the building trades division, powerful unit supporter of the president on a conference call with the american petroleum institute calling on the president to approve the pipeline. you can see how he is stuck between the constituents. sandra: i want to take this out to tyson. i want to use the number from the american petroleum institute, they say the ke keyse type one would create 20,000 u.s. jobs. the labor unions are for it, environmentalists are against it, why are
the environment at the same time for the third year in a row, sales tax will not be collected on energy star appliances. >> p they buy one of these energy star appliances this weekend, saturday, sunday monday they avoid the 6% sales tax. some of these appliances are $1,000 so that's a significant savings there. they then save in the operation of the appliance because it's an energy efficient item. >> reporter: this year it'll be held saturday february 16th through monday february 18th at stores across maryland. and consumers will find stores are already running president's day specials so the savings will add up. >> on top of that you don't have to pay sales tax on energy star appliances and you have a bg & e rebate which gives you 100 to $155. >> reporter: so expect sales on air-conditioning, furnaces, programmable thermostats, solar water heaters and cfl bulbs. local businesses say it helps their bottom line. >> it's a nice boost for our business. it takes us through into the spring. >> again the dates of this year's tax free energy star weekend are fe
decision for the president. does he side with energy independence? >> this certainly should not be a tough decision. this really is close to a no-brainer. he talked about it over and over again in his state of the union speech. he always talks about union jobs. this is infrastructure. this is union jobs. the great thing about it if it does not cost a penny to the taxpayers because it is all privately financed. even if you agree with the promise that global warming is a big problem and this oil will contribute, you know what, if it is not consumed here, it will be consumed somewhere else. it is not like it will go away. i do not think that the environmentalists have really thought this through. i just think they do not want it. dagen: this oil will go to china. it will be refined there with much looser environmental standards on refineries in that nation. not to make fun of our northern neighbors, but do you really want to make this country mad? canada has made it clear that it could retaliate against the u.s. do we need to be worried about this? >> that is a great question. they are part o
and deadly tornados. part of that energy is going to start to work up into the northeast tomorrow. for those still digging out, we're going to bring sleet, snow and freezing run rain. difficult weather conditions and general rain will go into the snow pack and potentially create roof collapses. here at the airport, and on the streets. it will be a difficult monday morning. lester? >> eric fisher, thanks. >>> on tuesday night, president obama will deliver the first state of the union address of his second term. and despite all the attention that gun violence and immigration have been getting in recent weeks, the economy will be the president's major theme. we have more on this tonight from nbc white house correspondent peter alexander. hi, peter. >> reporter: hi, lester. good evening to you. unlike his inaugural address last month, senior advisers to the president say that his state of the union address will be more specific, more policy and agenda oriented, as the president charts out his proposed course for the next year. heading into his fifth annual address before congress tuesday night,
next door. she wants to kill them now. i see a weird philosophical difference. this is the energy facebook is like anti-energy. all they do is talk to people out there. like you're not doing anything. they don't bring the country forward the way that oil does. i am a hypocrite because i tweet 118 last night. >> eric: weigh in on this full screen. look at low donations. donations to president obama for 5 to 1 versus romney. twitter was 71 to 1. but i'm guessing they don't include the loopholes with the social media. >> andrea: he talks about class warfare he created two classes but not the ones you think. the connected and the not connected. if you are a rich person but a friend of obama you get the tax benefits. if he deems he doesn't like you, you don't. that's why i don't like this. let everybody start out in the same position. examine a flat tax. the companies eventually do pass it on to the consumer. as greg points out, people now are at the pump with the highest gas prices in any month of february ever. the oil companies pay enough in taxes already. >> bob: is it fair to say
, looking for a guy who has the youth and the energy to travel the globe to reach out to the world's 1.2, nearly 1.2 billion catholics. he said there's a great value in experience and that, he says, of course comes with age. anita. >> there's a lot to be said for both. bruce leshan, thank you. news of pope benedict's res education in res resignation. the pope's visit left a lasting mark on the campus. >> he was himself, a university professor and that is something that means a lot to us. >> it filled me with sadness because pope benedict has been such an inspirational leader for the church. such a great mind. >> catholics were asked to pray for pope benedict during this week's mass. >> pope benedict became the leader of the roman catholic church. and he was elected by the college of cardinals april 19, 2005, he served for nearly eight years before announcing that resignation today and he'll officially step down february 28. and then the paper conclave gets together to choose his successor and that begins march 1. the selection process could take days or weeks. however, the church
conventional cars for a wish somebody told the department of energy that. >> he repeated something that has been well known for years and should have been known with the obama administration the electric car is the next big thing it has yet to replace the internal combustion engines because of cost, range and value. gerri: where do you go to recharge its? so many practical issues not taken into consideration but there were benefits for these at what point* do we say get out of the private sector? >> great point*. a bureau chief in detroit made that point*, the reuters article that you are referencing, a the public's indifference. [laughter] it is such a great wine. the numbers last year nissan thought they would sell 20,000 of the knees on the if but they sold 10,000 but ford sold 60,000 of the f-series pickup they sold more pickups in six days than nissan sold in one year. [laughter] gerri: the president wanted to put those cars on the road but no such luck. but now you are writing about wind energy? >> last week "wall street journal" i talked about fish and wildlife service is charged wit
'll be in the areas of things like manufacturing and infrastructure, some education reform proposals, and some energy that will also help create jobs. these are very commonsense initiatives. they're things that certainly have had a lot of bipartisan support in the past, and we're hopeful that we've started to make progress in working with congress and getting some things done and we're hopeful that they'll take this idea seriously. >> will they be paid for? will he propose ways to pay for his proposals? >> yes, yes. everything -- every initiative that is in the speech is paid for. it will not add a dime to the deficit. >> and what about cutting the deficit? jean spurling told joe scarborough that the president knows that he has to propose something. he has to make some proposals on entitlements. is he going to be that specific tonight? >> well, he has a specific -- we have a proposal that is on the table from the fiscal talks that we had with congress that has spending cuts that does do some entitlement reforms as well as raising revenue by closing loopholes to the -- that's still very much on the ta
they're not being stolen, pirated, copied. the department of energy, that was one of the three. the department of energy regulates oil and gas. so if you eliminate that department what happens? the department of education funds about 12% of u.s., the u.s. -- kate as 12 additional. you eliminate education. what happens? those were the questions that should have been asked of rick perry because those are the questions that might break through the difference is the people have as to whether or not the local of the federal government is too big. receptacle eliminated department and those assembly of a role to play in education. but it is that data, that evidence that is, i think, really, really quite important. now, with that said -- obama let me go back one second. caring about consequences. what i mean there is really, that's more about health care than anything else. is 50 million people, and i'm sure close to 50 million uninsured cannot talk about the plan to deal with it seems to me just to become a you know, an unbelievable acceptance of a condition that once you understand w
people who cry conspiracy because they could not energy out how a man like sweet mickey became president of haiti. and you can reality about it. the election was a mess. there were all kinds of things going on. he did have large support, especially in port-au-prince, and people did seem to like him and did have high hopes. so far what i can say -- i think the safest answer is that it's a little too soon to say what the results of his presidency are going to be. things haven't changed all that much in a general sense one way or another. my friends in the press in haiti i think feel a little more restricted than they did under the previous president. it's not in any way the repression that occurred during dictatorshipped of the past but that's a concern. but he is very charismatic and likeable and more willing to play ball with the united states, investment plans for haiti. of which -- i'm critical of many of which. but i guess we'll seem it's a dodge. but there you go. in terms of what is under the ground, there's certainly gold. there's certainly all kinds of mineral inside haiti. in the
could see new policy that deal with issues like clean energy. white house officials say the main thrust of the speech will be on pocketbook issues. highlighting a mix of old and new policies helping the middle class. >> how effective will his message be in persuading republicans on capitol hill? >> you have a president who wants to have a debate about immigration. he wants to have a debate about guns. he is also taking debate about climate and energy. >> athena jones cnn washington. >> you can watch the president's speech live on kron fours 24/7 channel comcast 193. all starts tomorrow at 6:00 p.m.. >> the family of late football coach joe paterno is accusing pin state of rushing their judgment in the jerry sandusky child abuse case. >> the family released a new report on their web site from former attorney general dick thornburgh reviewed at fbi directors lewis freehs report on the sandusky's sex scandal which was commissioned by penn state. he says the university fewwh report was factually wrong speculative and fundamentally flawed. >> he added that it was based on raw speculation uns
of the system is fed by gravity, without the use of energy-consuming pumps. valves open to regulate the flow into the 85-mile-long delaware aqueduct -- the longest tunnel in the world. at hillview reservoir... the water is partitioned into another giant tunnel system. where it travels deep below manhattan. the pressure built up by gravity from the mountains pushes the water upwards toward the surface through vertical shafts. these shafts feed the water mains of each neighborhood, which branch into smaller pipes below the streets... feeding into buildings and houses, into the plumbing, and finally, after its long journey, to our faucets. providing water to homes and industry is a monumental task, requiring immense infrastructure. but once the water is delivered and used, it must also be taken away. man: it's important that the waste generated by any society not be left around. cholera, and other diseases and problems, have been spread, because people wound up living in filth. even the ancients understood that you couldn't have the sewage where you lived. and the easiest thing to do was transp

that kind of time and emotional energy to gun eviolence. i think it shows he wants to fight on that issue. >> kelly o'donnell, you were there. were you able to gauge any reaction in the chamber among members of congress? >> it was interesting. i've been in the chamber for a number of this president's addresses and president bush before. and i think early in the evening, there was more of a sense of a flat energy. i don't know if that's because we've just come off the inaugural address. it seemed to take a while for the room to sort of ignite. when you got to the point where there was the discussion of guns, i was about five feet or so in front of gabby giffords and her family. so i was able to see how people around them looked as they stood first quietly and then applauding. and then i also could see how some of the other family members had brought photos of loved ones. i was also struck by when sort of the kind of emotion of the moment had faded, there was one woman, i presume a mother, who shouted out kind of picking up on the president's cadence, the name of her loved one and then repe
, clean energy, a whole host of these things. those proposals deserve a boat. that is what we want to see. the contrast of marco rubio giving a personal speech directed not at the country but very personally at the president, i think, is a huge missed opportunity for the republican party. they have to do something differently, or they will continue to lose national elections. >> whether or not you like republican policy ideas or vice versa, but contrast of the president talking and marco rubio talking about the president did not serve him well. >> at the end of the speech, again, it was almost as if it was two different speeches. rubio wants to take it big, let's come together and work on these things together. is this the same guy that was just basically blaming the president for everything, including bad weather? it just seemed very, very -- it will be seen as very off-putting to the people that live in this country and decide elections. it huge missed opportunity. >> thank you. pleasure to have you here tonight. >> thank you. >> i think rubio -- it sounds primitive as well -- to the ca
to the american people. the rest would be invested in clean energy and renew bees. the bill would close the halliburton loophole so drinking water would be safe from fracking fluid. getting it through congress is quite another game. >> if congress won't act soon to protect future generations i will. i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> michael: it turns out that the president's forceful pitch is exactly what the american public wants. a poll out this week finds that two thirds of voters support the president taking significant steps to address climate change. 93% believe americans have a moral obligation to future generations to leave them a planet that is not polluted or damaged. seems like you have the people on your side, mr. president. now it's time to take action. joining me now from right next to me is james west editor of the climate desk. james, so glad to have you here. i wa
business. it's one of the best places to do business in the country. but i appreciate the energy of rick perry. >> brian: he's got zero taxes in terms of what the state charges. he does have a situation where he feels as though texas has become a magnet for businesses not just from california, but from everywhere, as well as florida. >> california is outpacing job creation in texas. texas has no taxes, like income taxes, but their property taxes that are over two times higher than the state of california. so before everybody gets their moving vans out, consider the property tax impacts. that said, california has more scientist, more engineers, more nobel laureates, more venture capital, more patents emanating from it. it is still an essential place to do business. >> brian: i lived there for a while. you start off with a huge lead to anybody that comes to visit. you got rural, you got urban, you have everything you want and you got this incredible scenery. but you're losing people. look at the unemployment in california. 9.8%. in texas, it's 6.1%. we go on. and talk about other things th
congress to focus on attracting jobs to the u.s., trading american workers and energy. aside from one to raise the minimum hourly wage by the end of 2015, the president also touch on spending more to fix the nation's roads and bridges, and expanding early childhood education. is one of some of what you were saying at the kron4 facebook page about the state of the union address. betty jo well, so many ideas but he doesn't even have a budget passed. how can the government even began to make plans without a budget? for years of spending, without a budget, is ridiculous. keith says raise the minimum wage to $9? you raise it up, it trickles down to us, the consumers, with higher prices. it is basic economics. david says i no longer pay attention to what is happening in washington. dollar president commander in chief has plenty of good ideas, he pitches a well except for a he has an able to get anything done. >> 70 4:00 a.m. and president obama is state of the union address lit up the twitter of birds. 1.1 million state of being in related tweets were made between the time obama entered the

of a big donor. and there's fred upton, republican from michigan, chairman of the house energy and commerce committee. what a coincidence. the oil and gas industry is one of his top donors, helping him raise the $4 million dollars he spent last year to win re-election. senator kirsten gillibrand and senator chuck schumer, democrats of new york, have wall street as a constituent and patron. her biggest contributors include jpmorgan chase, morgan stanley, goldman sachs, and law firms that have advised them. his top donors include securities and investment firms, lawyers and legal firms, and lobbyists. and there are fleeting glances of some familiar faces here tonight seen recently on our broadcast. senator mitch mcconnell of kentucky, the republican leader in the senate, republican orrin hatch of utah, and democratic senator max baucus of montana. all cited by "the new york times" as suspects in that mysterious migration of half a billion dollars from taxpayers over to the bottom line of drug companies, especially the pharmaceutical giant amgen. would it surprise you to learn that over the pa
with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. ♪ make it worth watching. ♪ the new 2013 lexus ls. an entirely new pursuit. >>> president obama's about to wrap up a trip to florida that's been shrouded in secrecy. today, cnn did obtain these exclusive faraway pictures of the president out there on the golf curiouourse. we've seen nothing of his round of golf, though, with tiger woods. brian todd joining us now. why all the secrecy, why is the white house not letting ph
can bring a level of energy and a dynamism to the job that he simply at this stage in his life, he personally is simply not prepared to give. and, therefore, i think you could read this as hits decision to clear the way for someone else who can in effect give the church a new lease on life at what is undeniably a fairly difficult cross roots for it. >> american catholics at least half hope the next pope is more progressiv progressive on things like birth control and gay rights. joining us on the phone -- how do you feel about the pope's resignation? >> i agree with john, it's a stunning day in the history of the church. it appears to be an ability of humility. this comes right before catholics begin to celebrate lent. the season of atonement where we ask for forgiveness. and i think it makes a lot of us ask the question of what's possible, you know. like you mentioned, the leadership of the catholic church is facing a very great crisis. you mentioned the sex abuse. but also the overconcern for contraception and gay people and abortion rather than addressing the real moral issues li
